Thank you to Bryan Gourlay for sending me this photograph of a class at
Preston Street school.
Simpson from Tollcross, Edinburgh, left a message in the guest book on
I remember her mother who was in my class at Preston
Iíve attached a photo of our class. I'm guessing
it would have been taken around 1951-52. I think Audrey's mother,
Rose, is on the far left of the front row."
